Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones went 5 for 5 with a touchdown in his preseason debut last Thursday night. He looked very good in a very limited amount of snaps.

However –

Giants owner John Mara would be just fine if Eli Manning has a great season, as you can hear for yourself in this clip right here:

Transcription after the jump:

Reporter: Ideally, how would you like it to unfold for this season and beyond?

Mara: I hope Eli has a great year and Daniel never sees the field. I mean that would be an ideal world, to see that. Again, at the end of the day, it’s gonna be a decision by the head coach as to when, or if Daniel ends up playing this year.

Reporter: Obviously you want the team to win a lot of games and make the playoffs but if Daniel doesn’t play one game as a rookie, you’d be okay with that?

Mara: I’d be very happy about that because it means that we’re having a great year and Eli is having a great year.

Yeah, I mean, listen, I get it. But we all know Eli is not going to “have a great year,” and furthermore, if Jones continues to look good in the preseason, then just turn the page right now. Manning is 38 years old and he ain’t getting any better, so let’s not delay the inevitable here if we don’t have to.
